The rare beauty of the panoramic mountain hills in the afternoon sun is beautiful. On the brilliant background, the small Kyaikhtiyo pagodais placed on a large rock on the side of the mountain, all covered with gold. The Kyaikhtiyo (Myanmar Golden Stone Pagoda) was built more than 2,400 years ago – the time when the Buddha was alive.
Located at 1200 meters high and considered as a religious wonder, it symbolizes the spirituality of Burmese Buddhism and is considered one of the few natural masterpieces.
